AW E92 XI Content: Last few pics before the car is parted and returned to stock

My goal throughout my short-lived modding phase was to create a simple, clean, and somewhat practical daily driver. Driving lowered on 19s in NYC just wasn't doing it for me anymore in terms of practicality, making me constantly worry about potholes, driveways (my own garage included), and bad roads, so back to stock I've decided to go. This is/was my second and final rendition of my modded e92.

Things to note:
  • This is an XI
  • The wheels ARE OEM 359Ms WITH spacers
  • I'm cranked far down on KW V1s
  • I don't rub
  • Returning to stock will be a painful experience

Mods include:
  • OEM 359M wheels
  • OEM aero lip
  • OEM M3 spoiler lip
  • KW V1 coilovers
  • BMW Performance exhaust with secondary cat delete
  • LUX V3 angel eyes
  • Nokya yellow fogs
  • Coded amber delete
  • 5mm spacers all around
  • Black grilles
  • Color matched side reflectors
  • Vinyled window trim






Thanks for looking!

Your car almost looks identical to mine except my stance isn't as great as yours! On a side note, what angel eyes are those?

Clean ride. I'd be interested in the spacers when they're off. I'm local, so let me know.

Thank you, thank you. Definitely going to be difficult to part with.

Yes, definitely extended lugs with 5mm spacers. Stock lugs are 25mm and aren't long enough to safely run them with spacers.

Thanks man. Took some tweaking, but finally got a nice mix between aggressive and conservative.

They don't exist, and if they exist in replica form, well, I wouldn't buy replicas.

2. Thanks!
3. 24-70L for the first 3 shots, 50L at f/1.2 for the last (was doing test shots after having it serviced).
4. I like turtles
